90° ADAPTORS Right Hand Extended Version
The Extended 90° adaptor is used to allow bottom-inlet regulators, typically used with top-outlet gas cylinders, to be used with side-outlet gas cylinders which incorporate a valve guard.
The adaptor is available with a RH thread for oxygen and argon cylinders or with a LH thread for fuel gas cylinders.
Some cylinder manufacturers now produce bottles which require the regulator to be connected to the bottle from the side. The 90° adaptors allow this to happen by keeping the regulator the right way up so that the pressure control knob and gauges are always in view.
The adaptor is a cost-effective alternative to purchasing a specialised back or side-inlet regulator, which can prove to be more expensive. Turning a bottom-inlet regulator on its back to connect it to a side-outlet cylinder is not advisable as this can put unnecessary strain on the inlet stem, preventing the user from seeing the gauge readings. The use of a 90° adaptor helps to avoid such difficulties
